A Quilted Christmas Season

If you participated in the Countdown to Christmas project, I’d love it if you’d send a photo of your finished project to me so I can share it with those who visit here (quiltalicious (at) gmail (dot) com)!

Because of our Quilt Therapy Countdown to Christmas, I wasn’t able to share photos of all of the quilted Christmas gifts I made and distributed!

      Wow, you were very busy!! Fabulous projects. I love the second and last blocks in the second to last table runner. Those are fabulous.

      All the best for 2010.

      Cheers,
      Michele

      Thanks Michele – that table runner is totally original blocks — mostly sew n’slash style (meaning I just sewed and cut until I got what I wanted). FUN for me, too!

      Jessica: I found the pattern at a local hobby shop here, then looked online for a free pattern — which I found at http://web.archive.org/web/20071202190308/http://www.atimetostitch.com/potato_bags.htm. I still bought a pattern at the hobby shop, and then streamlined it (see my photo above) so I could mass produce them for Christmas gifts without so much work (lazy quilter – that’s ME). Using a pinking rotary blade, all I had to do was cut them out, sew the top and bottom seams across, fold and press, then run them through my machine with a straight and a zig-zag stitch. SUPER-simple!
